Around the world, various industries have begun their journey towards sustainability. In this sense, more and more facilities are being built and/or remodeled to be more friendly to nature and users. An example of this is the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, which now seeks to become a green air terminal.

Recently, Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) announced its expansion plan, which includes the creation of a NET Zero smart building, a project that is part of its 2020-24 Master Development Program.

Similarly, during the second half of 2020, the airport’s main parking lot was undergoing remodeling to implement a modern solar panel system, which had an investment of 14 million pesos.

Currently, the Puerto Vallarta International Airport has a total of:

  • 20 positions (1,373,475 ft2 of platform)
  • 11 direct boarding corridors / 14 passenger buses
  • 2 last waiting rooms for domestic and international passengers
  • Baggage Handling System (BHS)
  • 10 emergency plants distributed by zones
  • Terminal building area of 475,517 ft2
  • Runway 04-22 of 10,187 ft by 148 ft
  • General Aviation: 8,719 ft2 of building, plus 24 positions (313,499 ft2) and 2 helidecks

During 2020, the Puerto Vallarta International Airport was positioned in the first places of passenger traffic at national level, with a total of 29 destinations (eight domestic and 21 international), 22 airlines (seven domestic and 15 international); resulting in 38,867 operations throughout the year.
